Check Twitter for practice updates

Getting ready to leave for Napa and the Raiders’ first practice of training camp.

This morning at 8:30 a.m. will mark the first of eight “learning-intensive” or walk-through practices, although coach Tom Cable did refer to a little more action during drills.

For updates from the penalty box (the 20-yard rectangle on the far side of each field where the media must stay as of last year), check this link to my Twitter page.

The first player interview session, which ostensibly will include recently anointed starting quarterback Jason Campbell and newly-signed first-round pick Rolando McClain, take place following the first practice. There is a second practice at 4:20 p.m.

    Forgive LMN, he likely just watched a 2 hr soccer match that ended in 0-0 Overtime and suicide has crossed his mind Let him prop up a backup Qb in Philly to smooth him out a little bit.

    “…and Kafka wins division titles”

    Wait a minute. We’re talking about a rookie 4th round QB who’s had a nice first day of camp. Let’s not get his bust ready in Canton quite yet.

    I dont care what you think or say about me… I will stick to my assessment that you are douchebag who has nothing better to do than flex your internet muscles. The evidence is clear… you talk crap to everyone. Except no one agrees with you are cares what you think. Enjoy that though, I am sure coming in here is the one bright spot in your life.

    when the J. Ford experiment totally fails and we need a new QB in 2-3 years time and Kafka wins division titles you will regret the J. Ford pick just as much as I do…

    Good article, Monte.

    Re: Team’s record in Russell era vs. Team’s record in the 3 years b4 Russell,

    I’ve been saying the same since Russell was cut, over at Jerry McDonald’s blog (where I’ve since been banned, deservedly, I’m not complaining. lol). And thank you for bringing up a stat I’d never thought of, the Raiders’ record in the Russell era even when he didn’t touch the field. Bottom line is that there isn’t a statistic in existence that backs up the notion that the Raiders have improved by merely cutting Russell, and there’s a stat to support just about any old kooky theory. None to support this. Bottom line is that despite Russell’s dismal performance, and it was dismal, the Oakland Raiders have only improved under him from the team they were before him.

  • RaiderRockstar

    LOL @ people (Jwigg & Raider O) making a big deal over Dick Seymour playing DT.

    everybody (including myself) has said that Seymour will play all over the line and exploit mismatches. most of the time he’ll be inside on 3rd downs for pressure up the gut with Scott, Groves, Wimbley, Shaughnessy, Houston, etc applying pressure from the outside

    Henderson is a run clogger and his value will be on 1st & 2nd downs or short yardage. we’ll see what he’s got when they put the pads on. obviously I think he’ll be our most impressive force versus RB’s inside

    i havnt been this excited about our d-line since we drafted the howie long days! think of it Seymour and houston can flip flop all game long. then you can line up seymour at rde, and bring bing hendu in the game. The o-line will never know what is coming at them, not to mention scott dropping down for the occasional elephant look! This is nuts!!!!
